Posted Breed: Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Big and beautiful describes Wyatt perfectly! His sweet mom was a pregnant stray that we rescued in Dallas just prior to having her last litter of puppies. Wyatt was one of her little beauties born in foster care on April 8th, 2013. He’s not so little anymore, weighing in at 75 pounds. Wyatt is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix with floppy ears, soulful eyes and a beautiful brown brindle and white coat. Wyatt fortunately never had to live on the streets as a stray, but sadly he has waited a very long time for that perfect person to adopt him. He is a shy and fearful boy in new or unknown situations, but extremely happy and fun-loving in his comfort zone. If he gets scared or feels threatened, he generally runs away from the cause of it. He needs very slow and calm introductions to new people and other dogs, but once he befriends you, you’re in for lots of good Wyatt love. One of his best buddies says that every time he sees Wyatt, he gets loads of doggy kisses, cuddles and Wyatt wants to lay with him with their faces touching. This pup can show some deep love to his close friends. Wyatt’s foster mom has had him for a little over a year and loves him dearly, but she knows that he could be happier in a home with less action. He would benefit from a calm, stress-free environment where he doesn’t need to be a social butterfly or expected to visit dog parks. He’d be happy as a homebody, watching movies on the couch and be the King of his own backyard. Wyatt often sits on the couch with back end on the seat and his front feet on the floor. It’s quite the silly sight! An experienced dog owner with lots of patience and compassion is what Wyatt needs, but also someone that doesn’t have a constant flow of new people in their home. He enjoys the company of some dogs, but dogs with very high energy or reactive personalities are not for him. He prefers to have a couple of very close, trusted human friends in his life. Wyatt has not spent any time around children, but we feel they may be a bit much for him. He enjoys lots of activities like playing in his kiddie pool, carrying around all types of dog toys and running figure eights in the yard. Watching Wyatt run and play ball with friends is such a treat, especially the giant smile that covers his face. Wyatt is a fantastic leash walker and will stay right alongside of his person if it’s a quiet area without a lot of people but tries very hard to avoid anyone in his path. Wyatt is house, leash and crate trained perfectly. He also is well trained with all of his basic commands and listens well. He is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. This happy, healthy boy is ready for his forever family! He is dreaming of his future owners, so if you think you are his dream come true and would like to meet him today, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org. Adoption appliations can be submitted for him at http://duckteam6.org/adoption-application/. Wyatt’s adoption fee is $200.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This is sweet Coco. We've actually known her since her puppy days when her owner went through our Community Outreach Program to have her spayed and vaccinated 4 years ago. Since the rabies tag was registered to us, we were alerted when she recently showed up at a shelter. Turns out, her whole perfect world was suddenly flipped upside down when her owner ran into some financial trouble recently and lost his home. He was no longer able to properly care for Coco, and he had no choice but to reluctantly surrender her. We immediately visited the shelter and took Coco to a foster home. She is doing well and getting along great with the foster family's dogs. Coco loves her foster family, but is ready to start her forever life over again. Coco is a beautiful Chocolate Lab/Pit mix. She weighs 62 pounds, and has a short, stocky build. She has the most adorable floppy ears that are so soft to the touch! She does very well with people and other medium to large dogs, but she and cats do not mix well. Take a look into Coco's gorgeous eyes and consider making room in your heart and home for her. She is waiting for you, and we would love to make that connection. The first step is to email placement@duckteam6.org if you are interested in making her a member of your family. Coco is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She’s ready to have a family again and will make an amazingly companion. Her adoption fee is $200.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Chance is a handsome Pitbull Terrier mix, with the shiniest coat and cutest ears we’ve ever seen. He is a medium sized pup, weighing in about 40 pounds and estimated to about 2 years old. His ears often stand up as if he’s saying “you want to play?” or lie down when he’s relaxed and getting loved on. He has a scar on his back and on his previously broken leg that tell us that he had a rough life prior to being found. His rescuers have made a promise to him that he will always be well cared for, loved and that he will find a forever family soon. Chance is his happiest when he is with his people. He is a perfect inside dog because he loves to snuggle on the couch or in bed. He quickly turns playful when he is given toys. Chance is very grateful for every ounce of attention he is shown and rewards you with tail wags, loyalty, sweet looks and, if you’re really lucky, a kiss! He simply wants to please his family. He loves to romp and play in the yard and at the park. The car ride to the park might be his favorite part of the whole day! He is still quite shy meeting new people and can be a little fearful too, but that is very common in rescued dogs that have seen rough times. He does well meeting new people by doing slow, stress-free introductions. He is very bonded to his rescuers and they love him just as much, but know that he would be happier in a smaller, calmer household with more one on one attention. He would love a new owner that’s always willing to play and explore with him. He would be happiest in a family where he can be the only dog. Chance is not good with cats and shouldn’t be adopted into a family with cats or with neighborhood cats that often visit. He doesn’t like to be alone for super extended periods of time, so a normal workday would likely be the longest we’d suggest. If you work from home or even if he got to go to the office to “manage”, he’d enjoy that a lot. He is fully vaccinated, neutered and on heartworm preventative. He is housebroken and is getting better on his leash walks with practice. If you’d like more information about Chance or to meet him, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org.

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Husky Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Heidi is a 5 year old Husky/German Shepard mix with a gorgeous long haired black/brown coat. She is 59 pounds and an absolute sweetheart. She enjoys snacks, naps, and playing with her squeaky Kong toy. She loves all people, including children. She lives and plays well with other dogs and cats, too. As sometimes happens, a caring family adopted Heidi from a shelter over the summer and it was not the best fit. However, they love her and are committed to finding the perfect family for Heidi. We may never know Heidi’s story, but we imagine she has been bounced from place to place many times like most rescued pups have and has never experienced a proper adjustment period. Because of this, she is always fearful of being abandoned and experiences separation/confinement anxiety. She does not handle being left alone well. Kenneling Heidi only intensifies her anxiety and she will try to escape. As long as she is with her people, she is the sweetest and very mellow. Her current family is not home during the day, which is not ideal for her anxiety issues. We feel strongly that with time, a solid routine, and much attention from her new family, she will soon realize that she will not be abandoned, and her anxiety will be a thing of the past. The best family for Heidi is one that is home most of the time and will consider her an important member of the family. Heidi would also thrive in a home where her people are retired or work from home, or even a stay-at-home mom. To help alleviate some of her anxiety, Heidi attends doggy daycare 3 days a week where she enjoys people, socialization with other furry friends and plenty of exercise. Heidi’s family has noticed what a wonderful girl she is. She is the perfect companion for a family who has a lot of time to spend with her and the ability to take her to doggy daycare if they must be away for any length of time. She would also benefit from some training to help with her fear of abandonment. It is clear that Heidi has experienced some scary things in her life. If she hears loud voices, she lies down in a very submissive way. It took Heidi some time to adjust to her new surroundings with her current family. She didn’t even wag her tail for over a month. She has come a long way since then. She frequently wags her tail, runs and fetches balls now. With the right family, Heidi will continue to make progress and blossom into a very joyful companion. Heidi enjoys daily walks and she’s very well behaved on leash. She will walk or jog at whatever pace you set. She loves to do whatever activity her family is doing or just relax around the house. She has some frequent motion sickness issues while riding in the car, so she wouldn't be a great long distance traveler. She is already spayed, up to date on vaccinations and has a clean bill of health. She is hopeful to meet her perfect, patient and loving family very soon. Heidi is part of our Guest Dog Program that was established to help caring, compassionate people find permanent families for pups they have rescued, or need to rehome. If this gorgeous girl fits into your life, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org to set up a visit with her.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). My name is Blossom and I was rescued on Labor Day. I’m about 2 years old, 45 pounds and have a stunning dark brindle coat. I am a shy girl and really just want a kind and patient new family to make me a part of their lives. I get along well with all other dogs, but I need a family without cats. At meal times, I run up to my foster and wag my tail so hard that my whole body wiggles. I am a very happy and playful girl. I’ve learned so much since I landed in this amazing new foster home. I’m appreciative of my foster for helping me and I will extend that graciousness to my new family by offering all of the love I have. I am still a bit cautious with new people and places, but I’m hopeful for a future full of cuddles and affection. I will be the sweetest dog in the world for you, if you give me the chance! Would you like to meet me? I am now vaccinated, heartworm negative, microchipped and spayed. I am part of the Guest Dog Program through Duck Team 6, established to help people who have rescued pups to find permanent families for them. Duck Team 6 will help facilitate my adoption between my foster mom and my new family. Please email placement@duckteam6.org for any additional information or to set up a meet and greet with me.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My name is Anna and I've been told that I'm pretty much the perfect pup. I was rescued from a gas station, but you wouldn't know it because I'm super social and well mannered. I'm a Labrador mix, about 2 years old, 48 pounds and have a slender and athletic build. I'm enjoying my foster home, but I am ready to lay down some permanent roots. I adore all people and just give me a few minutes, I’ll be sitting next to you and giving kisses. I live with my foster parents, their 4-year old daughter and two furry foster sisters whom I love to play with. I do need a friendly, playful dog in my new family and a yard because I love to play and run for fun. My favorite places are the dog park because there's lots of action and attention from people and dogs and my foster mom's lap because I'm a cuddle bug. I was told that I don't look cuddly, but my pointy ears just make me look spunky. Everyone who has met me has figured out quickly that I am a very affectionate girl. I give kisses to my friends just to let them know I love them. I follow my foster family around everywhere and love to curl up for a long car ride. I have also learned all about toys and they are amazing! Be prepared though because I like to surround myself with them. Although I love to have a blast at the park and in my yard, I am really mellow and quite inside the house. I usually put myself into bed by 9pm. I am housetrained, good on the leash and I'm trusted in the house while my people are away. I’m spayed, heartworm negative, fully vaccinated and microchipped. I can’t wait to meet my new family! If you think I’m the girl for you, please send an email to placement@duckteam6.org so we can meet in person or you can go straight to the adoption application at https://duckteam6.org/adoption-application/. My adoption fee is $200.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Cash! He is a sweet yet cautious Labrador mix, with a beautiful light tan and white patchy coat. He is estimated to be about 2 1/2 years old and weighs in at 55 pounds. Cash is a really smart guy…he found us rather than us finding him! In our attempts to capture a different dog altogether, Cash walked into the cage instead! Instead of letting him go, we realized it was meant to be and lovingly took him into our program, making a promise to find him a better life. It has now been about 8 months and Cash is safe in a foster home, dreaming of a family to call his own. He has furry foster siblings and his favorite thing to do is run and play with them. You’ll know when he’s ready to play because he will spin around for you. He’s not much into chasing a ball or a toy, but he will be right on the heels of his furry siblings who do like chasing the ball. If he ends up with the ball, he will simply lay down and chew on it. Cash is great with kids that are little bit older and understand that he needs time to warm up. Cash is unsure of new people and new experiences at the moment, but we are seeing consistent improvement in this area. He typically enjoys spending time alone on the floor, doesn’t offer his belly for belly rubs yet, and is a bit nervous of someone walking behind him while on a leash. Recently however, he’s been climbing onto the couch to cuddle with the other dogs, and his foster mom has reported that he has been spending time under her desk on a dog bed with his head resting on her foot. Also, the more walks he goes on, the more he realizes that there is nothing to be afraid of. He takes treats very gently and shows no signs of fear aggression. This progress shows that with a patient and loving family of his own, he will build trust and leave the skittish tendencies behind. Because of his uneasiness in new situations, Cash will need a family that gives him the time to explore and investigate his new home, but also the gentle touch that will help him continue to build trust and confidence. He would also benefit greatly from having both doggie and human siblings to play with. Cash does not like being locked in a crate at all, but prefers the door open so he can walk in and out of it as he pleases. He is a perfectly healthy boy, house-trained, neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Cash’s ideal new family will be a patient and active one with both furry and human siblings. He would not be a great running partner or traveler at this time due to his tendency to be overwhelmed by new experiences. In the right supportive environment, Cash can become a loyal and confident family member. If this describes your family, we would like to make this connection! The first step is to send an email to placement@duckteam6.org, so we can reach out to you to set up a visit. Cash's adoption fee is $200.
